Denver Post columnist David Harsanyi channels Little Milton (the singer, not the economist) while watching Congress' latest hearings about baseball and steroids and feels so bad he feels a ballgame on a rainy day:
Clemens probably did it [used performance-enhancing drugs]. But that fact should not obscure larger questions: Since when is it Congress' bailiwick to run banana trials? After all, drug users typically rat out drug dealers. Why is Congress wasting its time on a single supposed user? Are there no congressional pages left to molest? No lobbyists left to schmooze? No tax dollars left to misplace?
Matt Welch and I called foul (please, make the sports-themed metaphors stop) on ill-informed congressmen sniffing jocks a few weeks back in the Wash Post.
